Jim Kenney Wins Democratic Primary for Philadelphia Mayor; Pennsylvania Primary Results
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA
started: 05/20/15 2:16 am | updated: 05/20/15 2:16 am
Former City Councilman Jim Kenney has won the Democratic nomination for Mayor in a landslide victory over a field of 6 candidates. State Senator Anthony Hardy Williams came in second with former District Attorney Lynne Abraham in a distant third. Nelson Diaz, Doug Oliver, and Milton Street rounded out the field. Kenney garnered roughly 56% of the vote, Williams 24% and Abraham 9%. Democrats outnumber Republicans in Philadelphia by an 8-1 margin, making this primary victory almost a pass to the mayor's office for Kenney. He will face Republican Melissa Murray Bailey in November.

In other races, incumbents held off challengers in City Council Districts 2 and 7. Kenyatta Johnson beat challenger Ori Feibush in District 2. Maria Quinones Sanchez held off challenger Manny Morales in District 7. It was the opposite in the Democratic At-Large races. Ed Neilson (D) and Wilson Goode Jr. (D) lost the primary to new comers Helen Gym, Derek Green, Allan Domb. For more information on results go to:

Philadelphians had four ballot questions to answer at the polls. They dealt with abolishing the School Reform Commission, creating a Commission for Women, improving access to city services for those with limited English proficiency, and establishing a Commission for Universal Pre-Kindergarten. All questions were answered "yes" by a 3-1 margin.
